What to Elvis Presley, Jason Priestley, and Wolverine have in common? Unforgettable sideburns. Don’t worry about if burns are in style, it’s all about how you wear them.
As with all hairstyles, choose your sideburns based on your face shape. Wider sideburns balance out long, narrow, and wide faces. Or wear narrow sideburns with a smaller or proportional face.
Your stylist or barber can help you find the most flattering and it’s recommended that you get them professionally shaped to start anyway. Also, sideburns look best when they are slightly wider on the bottom than on the top.
As for length, a conservative sideburn will end above the earlobe. This is the length James Dean wore and it still looks cool. For a more distinctive bad boy look, go a little longer, like Robert Pattinson. For a quirky look, go even longer like Flight of the Conchord’s Jemaine.
